Contexte
Demand for fish is growing in East Africa, but average yields from capture fisheries are dwindling. Aquaculture can close the gap, according to Wairimu Kagondu, Senior Industry Manager at Msingi East Africa. Msingi is an East African industry development organisation that aims to support the growth of competitive industries in the region. In cooperation with Wageningen University & Research, Msingi identified constraints to overcome so the aquaculture sector can grow.

Présentation  : Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation carried out the study in collaboration with Wageningen Marine Research, Wageningen Economic Research, Deltares, Farm Africa and local aquaculture experts. They focused on small-scale fish farmers, because these make up the majority of the sector. Nile tilapia and African catfish are the most commonly farmed species.
